Title: The Corinthian
Author: Georgette Heyer
Pages: 272
English Lit.
Plot: Walking home at dawn, quite drunk, Sir Richard Wyndham encounters heiress Penelope Creed climbing out her window. She is running away from a dreaded marriage to her fish-lipped cousin, while Sir Richard himself is contemplating a loveless marriage with a woman his friends have compared to a cold poultice. Sir Richard can't allow her to careen about the countryside unchaperoned, even in the guise of a boy, so he pretends to be her tutor and takes her on a fine adventure. When their stagecoach overturns, they find themselves embroiled with thieves, at the center of a murder investigation, and finally finding out what they both really want.

Why? Well it just really interested me. She has written so so many books and not all really interest me but a lot do and this one just sounded like something i would like to read and get into, a light English literature romantic comedy.
